Leaving the house at 4:30 am in a T-Shirt, it occurred to me that the warmest part of our summer was almost over.
I love summer, and I love summer fishing, it is my favorite time to be a fishing guide here.
In the last week of spey fishing we managed better than a fish a day pretty consistently. We have seen far fewer than one angler a day.
We have gotten summer steelhead, summer kings, and summer coho.
Along with that we have found lots of sea run trout and char.
It has not been red hot fishing, a good caster, who works at it will find a hot steelhead with patience, maybe two, but probably not three. But now, with the cooler nights and mornings, the fishing should start to pick up.
Caddis will start to move, and the fall salmon will start to sneak up the river. Fall, really, is here, whether the Calendar knows it or not.
